Atlanta, GA asked in DUI / DWI for Georgia

Q: 2 DUI convictions since 2014. I am unable to register a vehicle in my name even though I have a valid georgia license.

2 DUI convictions since 2014. After the first DUI I received a permit to and from work. I received the second DUI while driving on the permit. I have met all the courts requirements. I have a valid georgia driver's license but when I try to register a vehicle a red flag pops up. The courts requirements were DUI school, drug and alcohol evaluation and any recommendations, surrender of tags for vehicle's registered to me and surrender of my permit. At the time I did not have any vehicle's registered to me. I also signed an affidavit stating I had lost my permit therefore I didn't have anything to surrender.

A: Under Georgia law, if you have 2 or more DUI convictions, you are required to have an Interlock Ignition Device installed on your car. If you do not get it installed, you will not be able to get a new license, unless you can show you cannot install the device due to undue hardship.
